In seminars, a specific topic is elaborated under guidance. In this course type, you can actively participate, for example by giving a presentation and entering into the discussions.


These working groups offer you the opportunity to prepare the subject matter of a lecture or seminar and perform follow-up course work under the direction of a tutor. Tutorials are mainly offered in the humanities and social science subjects.


Here you will get to know and apply, in a smaller learning group, scientific working methods and / or the lecturers will discuss the content of the lecture with you in more detail.
